Pretty in Pink

I am giving centre stage to one beauty today who has been a perfectly delightful performer in Mygardenhaven, my diva, the pink hibiscus!

This is my pretty pink prima donna  all dressed up in her finery and flaunting her pretty frills and finery in my garden. This close-up of the pink double-petalled hibiscus is dedicated to Laura at Macro Friday, Tootsie at Fertilizer Friday, Sandra at Today's Flower and  Beverly at Pink Saturday.

Isn't she lovely?

The prima donna imagery I am using for this hibiscus inspires this haiku which I dedicate to Haiku Heights for the prompt, 'Poison'

beauty is a curse
fawning jealousy veils
  poison  in each smile


  1. A very beautiful flower. Have a wonderful weekend and take care:)

  2. Beauty is a curse?
    You mean the hibiscus?

  3. That is an awesome flower. I wish I could grow some like that. Truly a lovely post.

  4. @ A Garden of Threads - Thank you

    @ One - I was referring to beauty of performers like in the prima donna of a ballet...others in the cast would be jealous of her.But my hibiscus is safe, except from the poison of pests.

  5. @LV - Thanks, but I was thinking if only I could grow pink roses like yours.

  6. Wow! This photo makes it hard to believe these princesses are related to humble okra. :)

  7. This is indeed a pretty pink! Gorgeous bloom!

  8. What a beautiful flower! I love this time of year, when everything is blooming. Thanks for sharing.

    I invite you to come visit my blog....I'm giving away something pretty!

    Take Care,
